|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|ACL - Anterior Cruciate Ligament Rupture ACL Injury Healthy||Procedure: Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction|
Overall Study Design: This is a prospective, longitudinal cohort study of patients undergoing primary ACL reconstruction following ACL rupture. Surgical treatment and treatment timelines do not deviate from the national and international standards of care. Enrolled patients for study participation will undergo assessments involving blood, urine, and synovial fluid collection, clinical evaluation involving questionnaires and joint laxity testing, and MRI analysis.
Patient Selection and Enrollment: The participating physicians at each site will identify potential subjects from their clinics' patients according to the inclusion/exclusion criteria listed below. Based on surgical volumes at both sites, patients generally undergo ACL reconstruction 8-12 weeks after initial screening. In the preoperative timeframe, all patients will undergo standard physical therapy to address pain, swelling, and motion deficits, as is standard of care at both institutions. Arthroscopic ACL reconstruction will be performed by Dr. Bedi at the University of Michigan, by Professor Ao at Peking University, and by 5 additional surgeons at Peking University. All surgeons will utilize a standardized single-bundle technique with a hamstring or bone-patellar tendon-bone autograft.
